Morning Sketching

So, basically Jake and Jed are kicking my butt--we've decided to do some morning sketching around Provo a couple of days a week. Here are some of my results.

A local burger stand...
And even though we've been going out to paint architecture, I have this weakness for bikes from the 1970s. These two are Schwinns, even though I prefer European models such as my Raleigh import or a nice Bianchi. When torn between a love of bikes and sketching, what's better than sketching bikes?

Although, it is sad to see them in such disrepair--I want to adopt every mistreated bicycle I see, and love it back into working order, but our small two-bedroom apartment won't allow it.

i'm confused.... there seems to be no motors on these "bikes..." how do they move?

Laura said...

Awww, poor mistreated bikes. You should create a bike-pound for poor unfortunates like them.

Maybe we should STEAL BIKES for our next sketch adventure!!! I mean, after public lewdness, indecent exposure and attempted breaking and entering, what's a little larceny?

Nice bikes, by the way. Your paintings aren't bad, either.

Man, I need to learn how to use watercolors properly. These look awesome! And P.S. I got your comic book and it is also thoroughly awesome. And I appreciated the fancy original sketch you added. Thanks!

could you please paint a picture of j-dawgs and possibly costa vida? both highlights of architecture in provo. thanks.

Jed said...

Anthony, your middle bicycle sketch perfectly recreates the sensation of my eyes focusing and defocusing in real life. When I look at the bike in the foreground, it's like the BG just slips peacefully into blur. I love it!

I learn a lot from you, sir!

Jed said...

I don't know about Costa vida, but J Dawgs would actually be a great sketch.

Jenna said...
